Well I am finally giving you a recipe of my own! Yay! (Hopefully that’s what you are saying anyways… and if not just pretend for me would ya?) I actually haven’t been doing as much baking lately which is weird for me. But it being the Christmas season I expect to be getting back into it full force so hopefully I can come up with some goodies to share with you all! Any requests? What are your favourite Christmas desserts? If you have a dessert you would like me to try to “paleo-ify” let me know and I will give it a shot!
In other news it is officially winter. And by that I mean cold. Freezing actually. -40C today with the windchill. Seriously. Temperatures like this are not meant for humans to live in. It’s just fact. I literally have to push my dog out the door or he won’t go. I can’t blame the poor guy. And for those of you who like winter please keep those thoughts to yourself. It is on days like this when I seriously consider fleeing to a beach somewhere. Anyone else with me?
But speaking of Christmas has everyone started their shopping? Notice how I did not say finished? Because that would just be silly. I never understand how some people get all their shopping done so early! I feel like part of the adventure of Christmas shopping is trying to outsmart the crowds. Does anyone else feel that way? Are you asking for any good kitchen items for Christmas? I definitely have a cast iron pan on my list. And a dehydrator. And a Vitamix. Yes a girl can dream.
Well enough with the random thoughts. Enjoy the recipe! Let me know if you have any questions or comments! I always love hearing from you.
Ginger Cookies with Coconut Cream Icing (SCD, Paleo, GAPS)
1/2 package coconut cream concentrate (or use coconut butter instead)
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP butter or ghee
1 TBSP honey
1 tsp organic vanilla
1. Place coconut cream, coconut oil and butter/ghee into a microwave safe dish and heat for 35-45 seconds in the microwave on high
2. Remove from microwave, and stir to finish melting the ingredients
3. Add remaining ingredients and stir well
4. Place a teaspoon worth of icing onto each cookie (** Note: The icing will harden as it cools so if you don’t ice the cookies right away simply re-heat)
Have a good weekend everyone! If you make these let me know what you think!
